. >> a couple of areas showing no change included energy infrastructure, levies, and inland waterways. inland waterways getting a d-minus, barely above a failing grade. how, if you know, does the u.s. infrastructure compare with that of other countries? in some surveys, very poorly, i believe. >> well, what we do know is that our infrastructure is a part of our competitiveness in the world. if we want to be competitive we need to invest. we can look at things such as china investing some 9% in their infrastructure. europe investing 5% of their gdp in infrastructure. yet you look at the united states, and we're down around 2%. and that's about half of what we invested 50 years ago. >> what about bridges? where -- how -- you know, there have been major stories having to do with the safety of our bridges, that major collapse in minneapolis a few years ago, are ey getting better or not? >> yes. they're actually getting better. they improved over our 2009 report card. again, reflecting an increase investment in bridges. we're seeing that around the nation as local leaders step up and start replaci

of energy. is that correct? >> that's right. it is quite clearly depicted within the gospel that mary had a vision at the tomb. this vision involved an angel. jesus himself had taught that resurrection involved people becoming like angels. he said this very openly in the gospel according to mark. mary and jesus were entirely on the same wavelength where it concerned resurrection. at a later period, the view of resurrection became more and more physical, but it is interesting that the earlest writer to speak of the resurrection who is st. paul also agrees with mary magdalene and jesus. he says that the resurrection has to be understood as spiritual and not as physical. >> you know what your word are awakening here. they awaken the thought of where is the body? where did jesus' corpse go? it is not reanimated corpse we know about or we should be knowing about in the resurrection. to say nothing about how this shatters the belief of so many christians everywhere, right? >> that's exactly the case. what i would like to assure those who believe in a physical resurrection is that within the gos
the popular celebration, families paint each other and toss colored water and powders that represent energy, life, and joy. on sunday, western christians observe palm sunday. it marks the beginning of holy week -- days of prayers and services, among them holy thursday and good friday, all leading up to the celebration of easter, next sunday. >>> this coming monday night, passover begins. jews remember their ancestors' deliverance from slavery in egypt, and their wandering for 40 years in the desert until, finally, they reached the promised land. we have a story today about jews going to arches national park in utah to commemorate passover and the exodus by walking in the desert, just as jews did in biblical times. our guide was rabbi jamie korngold, also known as "the adventure rabbi." >> the desert is absolutely the right place to be telling this story. the core of this story is that the israelites went down to egypt as a family. they come out, 600,000 people, and then they wander in the wilderness and become a nation. it's in the wilderness where they meet god. it's in the wilderness wher
on in the u.s. you have the manufacturing renaissance. you have really an energy bonanza. so i think the market can gon higher. i think there's a real risk of having too much money in nonproductive assets on the sidelines. >> doug, for a long time, individual investors were fearful of the markets and saying they were too scared to get into the markets. and now they're so scared that they've missed this rally. what do you say to your clients when they bring up this question? is it too late to buy in now? >> in the year 2000, year 2007 and now again today, the s&p was at about 1550. what i would point out is those were different valuations. in 2000 the market was trading nearly 30 times earnings. in 2007 it was about 16 or 17 times earnings, and today it's about 14 times earnings. so the stocks, there's much more earnings underlying them providing a foundation for valuations. so i believe one, is valuations are fair, and then we see central banks around the world have kept interest rates low in printing money. in the end those dollars will flow into stocks and make them go higher. >>
at the u.n. last fall. iran maintains its nuclear program is solely for peaceful energy production. as the arab uprisings convulse the president viewed a missile battery of the iron dome defense system-- heavily financed by the u.s., which knocked scores of rockets from the sky during brief november war with gaza. the president's remarks heavy with allusions to millenia of jewish history in the holy land and a nod to the broad purposes of his trip. >> across this region the winds of change bring both promise and peril. so i see this visit as an opportunity to reaffirm the unbreakable bonds between our nations, to restate america's unwavering commitment to israel's security, and to speak directly to the people of israel and to your neighbors. >> warner: he was referring to another focus of this visit: to listen to what israeli and palestinian leaders say they're willing to do to revive the stalled peace process between them. later at a press conference at the prime minister's jerusalem residence, the president was asked about yesterday's possible chemical weapons attack in northern
same-sex marriage. that's one problem. where is some of the energy from the party now? who won the c-pac straw poll, rand paul not an establishment republican, a person from the liberrian wing of the party. they are not together on some of the mechanical things. the report recommends going to primaries as opposed to caucuses and conventions because that's a broader electorate. well, caucuses and conventions are the way somebody like a rand paul or even a rick santorum is going to be able to be a real competitor for the nomination. >> ifill: it talks about cutting in half the number of primary debates. a little bit of the early season cannibalization doesn't occur. >> we see this after party loses a presidential race or two. >> whatever they did last time. they try to do something else. but i think the problem for the r.n.c. is this. our politics and our lives, our world, has changed. we're no longer... politics is no longer dominated by the hierarchical national parties that 40, 50 years ago could dictate who can run for office and when to have conventions and raise the money. you ha
